Unhappy Is this Frozen OJ spoiled?

I bought some frozen orange juice concentrate yesterday frmo a tiny little store...perhaps the stock doesn't turn over that fast...anyway, it's been a while since I bought frozen oj and admittedly this wasn't a brand I'd ever bought before...but...it seems browner in colour than I remember.

It smells fine. It (eep) tastes fine...I think. But I am sick as a dog with a cold (why I bought the oj in the first place) and so my sense of smell and taste is off.

I don't want to go out in the freezing cold again to buy more but I am sick and I want juice! :(

1. Do we think this has gone bad?
2. What will happen if I go ahead and drink a whole big glass of it?

When in doubt, throw it out. It's possible that it was thawed and then frozen again. They are cheap anyways.

If it's brown, crunch it down; if it's black, send it back.

Well, it's something I picked up from the Bundys in Married... with Children. They applied the criteria to their water supply. I don't want to get sued, but if it were me, and the taste and smell were ok, I'd just drink it despite the colour or my subdued sensibilities.
